3 trucking industry trends that influence hauling and transportation
With increased congestion and transportation costs across the world, the trucking industry is on the verge of disruption. Technological innovation is driving the industry to new standards and powers new business models that introduce a new paradigm for the global economy. This innovation is highlighted through 3 main key trends that have influenced the trucking and transportation industry during the last years.
1. Demand for same-day and next-day delivery
With the increased internet and mobile penetration and the effect of the pandemic on the global economy across the world, eCommerce has witnessed a tremendous rise. The shopping experience has been optimized and last-mile efficiency was required to step up and provide faster, better and more reliable options. In fact, the last-mile delivery market is expected to expand at a CAGR of 20.3% from 2021 to 2030. Same-day or next-day delivery, are some examples of how the recent eCommerce explosion has increased the expectations of customers in every sector and delivered service.
2. Real-time tracking and on-demand services
Technology has accelerated the growth in the trucking industry. Now real-time data are utilized in various verticals making it possible to generate personalized and timely services. Along these lines, customers got used to receiving optimized services that match their needs at any point in time which gave rise to the creation of on-demand business models (such as Uber) that relinquish the barrier of time in business offerings. Now customers expect more and technology is able to provide that.
3. Social and environmental impact
The transportation industry witnessed many changes in recent years. The greater demand for drivers to fulfill the needs of an increased eCommerce, resulted in more vehicles on the streets, extreme working hours and higher emissions. Electric vehicles and active transportation promise a lower footprint powered by technological innovation while the unfairly treated workforce resulted in a significant driver shortage that made the industry struggle throughout a very demanding period. For this reason, new monetization options became available to drivers that offer more flexibility, fair pay and environmentally-friendly alternatives for the driver workforce.
